Within the avalon projects we generally have:

   gump-project-name == maven-artifact-id

But its not 100% consistent.  Modules could be repackaged to match 
maven-group-id, but keep in mind that this would result in a large 
number of groups - for example, this would generate separate groups for 
avalon-framework, avalon-logging, avalon-repository, avalon-meta, 
avalon-util, merlin, etc., etc.

But yes - module name is probably a better bet.

The ability to declare the module under a gump project definition would 
be easy to incorporate.  Some work would still be needed to breakout 
gump projects with multiple artifacts into one gump project per artifact 
and an aggregating project where necessary (e.g. avalon-framework should 
be separated into avalon-framework-api, avalon-framework-impl and 
avalon-framework recast as an aggregation of the two).

Cheers, Stephen.
